A couple days ago, I visited the Daily Kos, through my Hushmail e-mail, and clicked on a report titled “So, Trump was a Putin Puppet After All.” At the bottom of the page, with all the alluring women (and gossip about Trumps daughters, and whether he would sell them, with our liberty, to increase shareholder value) was a series of pictures about a lion sneaking up on a leopard. He was going to get a surprise, and we were to click the series to see what the leopard would do. Suddenly, my computer screen was seized, and a voice (I have turned all sound off twice on this Toshiba) came on telling me that my hard drive would be destroyed if I did not call 888-295-8910 for their fine services. I of course did not obey, but called Charter, who handles our wire, and eventually, the FBI. If one turns off the computer, unplugs the internet, then turns it back on later, it still says “in five minutes,” which means that I am correct and the phone number is fake. They would then have been able to connect my phone to the computer, and make their extortion offer.
And who might have an interest in destroying the hard drive of people concerned with such questions?
I had been raising the question of the possibility of voter fraud, given the strange results of this close election, and the interference of the Russians in the Wiki leak about Bernie Sanders and the James Comey reminder about the stupid e-mails a week before the election. Again, America has less than two months to figure out whether, for example, the Russians, using Kaspersky, American spy marketing and American slavishness, did something to manipulate the consumer into taking that oxy-inspired dreamlike attitude, like Dorothy among poppies, toward Kaspersky and the idea of a Russian style or Heck, why not just a Russian Government! The Wicked Witch of the East may be dead, having the house fall on her, but that one from the West, remember, the man behind the curtain sent Dorothy to get her broom. If it would increase shareholder value, he might have sold her too!
P.S. By the way: Had Hillary chosen Bernie Sanders for Vice President, I believe she would have won. Burt who listens to me! They have well paid consultants, for example to direct them to choices like Sarah Palin. She would have overcome the weight this added to the perception of her integrity, and taken away that clean up Washington motive, giving us someone, namely Bernie, who is not the embodiment of what is wrong: Money. The American voter is so smart: Anything but a Washington insider. “Hey lets have an “outsider, like how ’bout Hitler!” How ’bout Idi Amin, he’s an “outsider!” Yea, the “Alt-Right,” the Nazis and the clan used to be outsiders. Now the “public policy” group and Steve Bannon are to give the Nazis a presence in Washington for the first time. Hey, we are so “open-minded” that we could not be so unpatriotic as to oppose the entrance of Nazis into government or raise questions about the FBI and election fraud. I mean we would not want to be prejudiced, even against those seeking an “Ethno-state.” And surely they would not use that Machiavellian teaching about bringing in an outside power without remembering the Machiavellian teaching to be careful about such a power.
Another thing Hillary might have done is speak some obvious truths to our politically challenged Evangelicals. The fact is that “stronger together” is more Christian, and the diabolical Nazis and the KKK are, well, not Christian at all, any more than is the cruelty and vulgarity of the candidate they voted for in and attempt to use Trump to get their own agenda, in what will indeed be an unpleasant surprise. She did try to say that that is not who we are as a people. But her Methodism ought have allowed her to make the simple, Sermon on the Mount arguments, given that these are true and need only be stated.
We need the Obama administration, while they are still the boss of the FBI, to consider whether we have not just witnessed a Democratic Coup. Soon it will be too late, and the FBI will be an instrument of their oppression. It is already clear that congress will not oversee them, and it has been a fair question whether they are obedient even to the president, those agents are just so smart, lifelong un-elected servants of the Constitution. They do what ever they want and lie to whomever they want, and are just ripe to obey the unconstitutional designs of a President Trump, beginning with an assault on Journalists and the First Amendment.
